PRAYER REQUEST/THANK YOU 

Please be praying for Kathy Teamor and her family while they face the loss of Kathy's niece, Cidney Thomas, daughter of Kevin and Kelly Thomas. Cidney was in a horrific fatal head on car collision this past Sunday, August 4th, in Cleveland, OH. Please send cards of encouragement to: Kevin Thomas (Father), 1103 Rutherford Rd. Cleveland Heights, OH 44112; Kelly Thomas (Mother), 6167 South Perkins Rd, Bedford Heights, OH 44146. 

Also, please pray for Kathy and her family as they will be moving overseas to England in the near future. 

A big thank you from Heidi and the Vierkant family for the prayers, love and support during the past several months. Heidi has completed her chemotherapy and is in remission from cancer. All the prayers truly made a difference and the church family helped us carry the load during a trying time. We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of love. Please continue to pray that it never comes back.  

Thank you is not enough for what the church family has been for me and my family. Every card, gift, visit, flower and prayer that everyone gave let me know that God loves me. Jesus said in Acts 20:35 that it is more blessed to give than receive so I hope you all are blessed even if I don't recall how you reached out to me, especially early after the accident. It made a positive difference and I am so grateful!  -Carlisa
